The house itself is an important landmark in Florida history. Stunning architecture. It is furnished to the era of last permanent residents - early Twentieth Century. Disappointing.

I like old style Southern Buildings, This is one of them. The outside is really beautiful, the inside has a lot of artifacts, but not that interesting.

Tours are free to the public....The Knott House is an 1840's home decorated in the Victorian era....with 1900's furnishings original to the home when occupied by the Knott family. Very Interesting and the tour director was very knowledgeable.

My daughters have enjoyed attending poetry camp the last couple of summers. Mrs. Knott was certainly a character with her kerosene lamps and exercise bike. You have got to hear the story about the wallpaper.
